You know that a home regimen is vital to the maintenance of your oral health.  Regularly scheduled professional checkups are important but a lot can happen over the months between dental appointments.  Brushing and flossing every day and following a well-balanced diet will help prevent any minor issues that may crop up during that time.  But when you see all the dental products that are available today how will you know which ones to choose?

Take advantage of the time you have to spend with your dental hygienist and ask her opinion on some of the products that you have seen advertised.  Not only does she keep track of the newest innovations in the field of dental care but she is able to see the results of the products that she may have recommended to other patients.  Always look for the

Seal of Approval by the American Dental Association on the label of any over the counter product you buy.

The great majority of dentists and hygienists continue to recommend using a soft bristle toothbrush.  Manufacturers also offer both medium and hard bristles but a hard bristle brush may be better used for cleaning your grout instead of your teeth.

Some professionals do feel that an electric toothbrush does a better job than a manual one.  No matter which you prefer however remember to replace the brush head every three months or sooner if it shows signs of wear.
